Using our expertise in building loyalty programs, we proposed some ideas, which the client appreciated. This teamwork, along with the client being open to our suggestions, led to a hugely successful app launch.

What happened Next

Have further questions?

  • Can a loyalty app really boost customer engagement?

    Absolutely! The Instantor Rewards app is a great example. By offering points for purchases and tiered rewards, we saw a significant increase in user engagement. Users spent over 3 minutes per session actively participating in the program. This level of engagement translates to stronger customer relationships and, as Instantor saw, a 25% rise in repeat purchases.

  • What are the technical challenges of building a receipt-based loyalty program?

    One key challenge is receipt processing. There are two main approaches:

    • Manual review: This ensures accuracy but can be time-consuming for large user bases.

    • Optical Character Recognition (OCR): This technology automatically extracts data from receipts using your phone's camera. While convenient, OCR can have limitations with blurry images or complex layouts.

    The best approach often involves a combination of these methods.

  • How long does it typically take to develop a loyalty app?

    The development time depends on the app's complexity. A basic app like Instantor Rewards could be built in 3-6 months, while a more feature-rich program might take longer. The key is to prioritize features and focus on a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to launch quickly and gather user feedback for future iterations.

  • What are the benefits of building a native app vs. a web app for a loyalty program?

    Native apps offer a smoother user experience, leveraging features like push notifications and camera access for receipt scanning. However, they require development for both iOS and Android platforms. Web apps are more versatile but may lack the functionality and feel of a native app.

  • Is there a way to track the success of my loyalty app?

    Absolutely! Analytics tools can track key metrics like user engagement, purchase frequency, and redemption rates. By monitoring these metrics, you can measure the app's effectiveness and make adjustments to optimize the program for better results.
